2011 Corton Clos des Cortons FAIVELEY
Good deep red. A bit darker on the nose than the grand crus from Gevrey-Chambertin, offering explosive aromas of crushed raspberry, black cherry, exotic spices and a touch of smoke. Compellingly rich and seamless in the mouth, with terrific sappy verve to the urgent flavors of red berries, minerals and game. The very long, slowly rising finish boasts outstanding energy and thrust and saturates the mouth with sweet perfume. Rated (93-96). ‑ Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar January/February 2013

2011 Chassagne‑Montrachet Château de la Maltroye
A pungent and expressive nose features notes of fennel, citrus peel and spiced pear. There is excellent volume and vibrancy to the textured, intense and solidly powerful middle weight flavors that offer much better than average depth and length for a villages level Chassagne. Rated 89. ‑ Allen Meadows' burghound.com

2011 Bâtard‑Montrachet Paul PERNOT et ses Fils
Bright yellow with green highlights. Deep aromas of fresh apricot, crushed stone and clove. Dense, deeply pitched and soil-driven, with a distinctly saline aspect to the flavors of spices, menthol and flowers. Impressively concentrated for the vintage but quite closed today. The saline quality carries through onto the serious, slowly mounting finish. Pernot notes that his Batard vines are on the Chassagne side of the vineyard, and thus this wine is very different in style from his Bienvenue, which is on the Puligny side. Rated (92-94). ‑ Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar September 2012

2012 Mâcon‑Lugny Les Charmes Chardonnay
The "Les Charmes" vineyard near the village of Lugny in the Mâconnais region of southern Burgundy is prized for its exceptional southern exposure and for the age of its vines, averaging some 40 years of age on the whole. Around here, we prize its production as among the surest of bets for value in white wine. Vinified entirely in stainless steel and bottled sans bois, that is, unlumbered, 100% unencumbered by oak, at the nearby Cave de Lugny; green‑gold in color, the wine is fresh and vibrant with aromas that would suggest hazelnut, citrus flower and acacia honeys on a foundation of refreshing summer rains on limestone; medium‑bodied, ample in weight, with a clean, crisp and lasting flavor on the finish. Given the consistently excellent quality and its extremely fair price, it’s not much wonder that Mâcon‑Lugny Les Charmes Chardonnay is the best‑selling white Burgundy in the United States!
